|Small Drawers done.|
The second thing I learned about installing drawers today is that cam adjusting slides are a godsend. I wasn't perfect with installing the drawer members of the slides, so the boxes weren't perfect in the drawer opening -- with the cam adjust, that was fixed in a matter of seconds. I can only imagine the frustration I'd be going through if I had to do it with the slotted holes in the drawer slides and all that.
I still need to make drawer fronts and doors. I got the doors built today since I had some time and I had to wait for the glue on the drawers to set up. I had cut the rails and stiles the other day and had them all milled up and ready for panels. I made those from the plywood I bought the other day since I have about a half sheet left.

Even though my drawers and stuff aren't technically done, that doesn't mean that I can't use them already. One of my small drawers was going to be fastener storage, and all my screws and brads fit perfectly in there. The other one was going to be for driver, bit, and other miscellaneous storage. I think it'll work out very well for now. I'm thinking I'll need to re-purpose some things to make it all work just right if I start collecting router bits, but one of my big drawers on the right side is basically unused right now, so there's still some configuring I can do.
